Mmm...A yummy pasta dish that stays in the limits of pasta town but still very hearty and healthy meal. This meal is easy to prepare and good to make for a nice fall or summer lunch.

Directions

  • Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil. Stir in the fettuccine, bring back to a boil, and cook pasta over medium heat until cooked through but still firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain.

  • Whisk flour and lemon-pepper seasoning together in a shallow bowl; dredge chicken through mixture until evenly coated, shaking excess back into bowl.

  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat; cook chicken until light golden brown and no longer pink in the center, 6 to 10 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Transfer chicken to a plate, retaining oil mixture in the skillet.

  • Mix white wine, lemon juice, water, and chicken bouillon granules into oil mixture in the skillet. Bring liquid to a boil while scraping the browned bits of food off of the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon until sauce is slightly reduced, 2 to 4 minutes. Stir capers into sauce.

  • Divide pasta among serving plates; top with chicken. Spoon sauce over chicken and garnish with lemon wedges and parsley.

Cook's Notes:

Turkey breast tenderloins can be used in place of chicken. Linguine can be used in place of fettuccine. Cooking oil can be used in place of olive oil.

This is delicious and EVERYONE raved about it. And it's not a hard dish to make. I didn't have lemon juice so I used lime. We loved it! I made half again the recipe because it's a little small for four people and when I made it half as much again it was about perfect for four. It could easily be doubled. For white wine I used Pinot Grigio Read More

The flavor was nice and very light but it was just ok. I had to make double the sauce and it still wasn't enough. I made a recipe from Allrecipes previously that I thought was better so I'll look for that the next time. Read More

I made a mix of this recipe with the Quick Chicken Piccata recipe from this site. I pounded the chicken so it was very thin so cooking time was around 2 minutes per side. I didn't have lemon-pepper seasoning so I put lemon zest into the flour with pepper and cayenne pepper. I used 1/3 cup of lemon juice 1/4 cup of water 3TBS cold unsalted butter; and I added a bunch of parsley on top for serving. It is really a combination of both recipes. Everyone liked it; two asked for the recipe. Oh I also added a c an of cut-up artichoke hearts. Read More

Chicken recipe portion is delicious. Make sure to pound the chicken to soften it up. The sauce portion was not so great. I did not have bouillon so maybe that is where it went wrong. I used Pinot Grigio and it was just too bitter and not a great flavor. Perhaps white wine works better or maybe adding more water and less wine. Otherwise was great Read More
